    I don't know that fifteen thousand means 15,000. (Though it's a slightly odd sentence)

    Additionally, given the fact that you now know the following information, that fifteen thousand and 15,000 are one and the same, use past tense "didn't",

    I didn't know (the following information:) that X means Y, but now I do.
